In which Hank discusses The Hunger Games, the extreme inequality of our society, and what it means to be a citizen of The Capitol. Inequality is so difficult to fight in our world because there is no President Snow. I'm not saying that there are no bad people, but inequality is natural, and so we can't hate ourselves for being a part of it. But because it is so inevitable, we have to create structures to reduce it, because inequality is terrible both morally and economically.

In which John discusses the forthcoming 2013 Project for Awesome, the health of the Bank of Nerdfighteria, the strength of Toby Turner's arms, the nerdfighter kiva group, and the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck. Oh, and there is a surprise.
The Foundation is now a real, actual charity, which means your donations are now tax-deductible. (At least in the U.S.) You can donate directly at http://fightworldsuck.org/. Thanks to very generous anonymous contributors to the Foundation, every dollar you donate up to $125,000 will be matched. And because the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck has 0 overhead, every penny you donate will go to p4a charities chosen by the nerdfighter community.
I've been thinking about it a lot because some of my good friends did dumb things, realized how dumb they were, and made very good apologies, not because they're good at apologizing but because the legitimately feel bad for the harm that they've caused.
On the other hand, some other people on the internet seem perpetually convinced that the world is out to get them and that they are in a battle to confirm that they are always right. But, y'know, you're never always right, and the fact that you didn't intend to hurt someone has no bearing on whether or not you hurt someone.
ChescaLeigh's video was really helpful for me and is more specific to when you get called out on being inappropriate or hurting an entire group of people with your language or actions...she is REALLY AMAZING...
Health Care Triage: http://www.youtube.com/user/thehealthcaretriage In which John discusses Dr. Aaron Carroll's new project, Health Care Triage, as well as some astonishing facts about human health that he learned from Dr. Carroll's books, Don't Swallow Your Gum and Don't Cross Your Eyes.
Also, Henry appears to give me a punishment, which sadly does not include worm pizza because you can get intestinal hookworms from eating earthworms, and I'll do a lot for you guys, but not that.
Every year, one of my favorite things to do is take the music of a YouTuber and edit it together with clips from VidCon. It's always epic and fun and surprising and awesome and there's just so much amazing footage from the event. This year I edited to Mike Diva's BFD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxiItsU0-_s
